Mastodon - Curl of the Burl
Wow. What else needs to be said? Curl of the Burl, Mastodon's latest single from soon to be released The Hunter is such a simplistic Balls-to-the-Wall sludgy and heavy piece of doomy progressive stoner rock. It's groovy, yet ferocious and clearly inspired by various peers of Mastodon like Black Sabbath and Kyuss. It's a wonderful piece of music for listeners to get lost in, with it's thrashy guitar licks and epic solos and smooth vocals. This song is pure awesomeness. It's left me speechless. Genuinely. I have nothing else to say about this, apart from have a listen yourself and allow yourself to fall into this trance of glory that I am currently feeling. Seriously, people say listening to stoner rock has a better feeling than actually getting stoned and I'm totally inclined to agree using this as evidence.
